Also called: Tendonitis 

Tendons are the tough cords of tissue that attach muscles to bones. They help muscles move the bones.

Tendinitis means inflammation of a tendon. It causes pain and tenderness near a joint. It usually occurs in the shoulders, elbows, knees, hips, heels or wrists. Depending on where it happens, it may have a special name, such as lateral epicondylitis /tennis elbow or medial epicondylitis/golfers elbow

Injuries and overuse are common causes of tendinitis. Cross-training, stretching and decreasing the intensity when exercising might help prevent tendinitis.

Certain diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, also can cause it. You can usually treat tendinitis with rest, ice and medicine to relieve pain and decrease swelling. Other treatments include ultrasound, physical therapy, steroid injections and surgery.
